Travel photography trip to FL (Miami, Key West, etc)

So I will be taking a trip down to Miami area in a few weeks for work but will have 4 free days between meetings. Looking for good photo spots as this will be my first time to the general area. My basic research suggests things like:

Some sunrises / sunsets maybe, at Miami Beach

Maybe an evening at/around South Beach area

Want to spend a day (or two perhaps) going down to Key West (will be driving so i can stop along the way)

Also wanting to visit the Keenedy Space Center but this may take a full day as it's a 3.5 hour drive there and back, plus whatever time i spend there so that will eat up one day. The keys will probably eat up at least one other day, although I could leave after sunrise and drive down, so icould probably fit a sunrise in somewhere before heading down.  But I also may skip KSC on this trip too, depending on what people recommend (as far as shooting locations).  KSC isn't really going anyway s oi don't necessarily have to go on this trip, and would almost be better off waiting until a future trip when I can stay closer to save driving time, so I'm OK with skipping KSC.

Just looking for some suggestion as for photo opportunities.

FWIW, I'll have a basic camera kit (travel tripod, wide angle zoom lens and my 24-120mm travel zoom lens). I can bring a lot of stuff since it is a work trip and they aren't paying for a checked bag. I'm thinking / hoping this is enough (may bring a 50mm for at night too).
